Impunity prevails in aggressions against women journalists in Mexico, says Article 19

"In Mexico, being a woman and a journalist implies a double violence. On the one hand, the one that impacts us every day with 10 murdered women; and on the other, the absolute lack of access to comprehensive protection for the exercise of freedom of expression, with 99% of impunity in recorded cases of attacks on journalists, according to Noemi Pineda, researcher of documentation and case monitoring for the Protection and Defense Program of ARTICLE 19.


The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) reports that from 2005 to 2022 in Mexico, seven women journalists were murdered. While, according to ARTICLE 19, of the 644 attacks on journalists in 2021 approximately 30% (193) were attacks on women, the digital sphere is where these attacks have increased the most and where their gender condition stands out."
